States have long sought ways to close budget gaps and increase revenues—and sales tax is often the answer. With the explosion of eCommerce in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and many states offering financial relief for residents and local business owners, sales and use tax audits may soon be on the rise as a way to ensure states are collecting all that’s due.
Businesses no longer have to worry if they’ll be selected for a sales and use tax audit, but when. States may become increasingly aggressive in audits, and something as simple as an office building closure or remote sales can tip them off. So, what else can increase the risk of a business being chosen for a sales and use tax audit? And what can you expect should your business be selected for an audit? We'll go over these questions in this webinar, navigating a sales and use tax audit in 2021.
Understanding what to expect from a sales and use tax audit can save your business both time and money. Attend this webinar to learn how you can face the inevitable with confidence.
